Publisher Comments:

With a new introduction and conclusion, and new foreword from coauthor Julian Assange, this cult classic tells the extraordinary true story of the 1990s computer underground creating chaos inside the U. S. military, NASA, and more

The bizarre lives and crimes of an elite ring of international hackers who took on the establishment are told in this gripping tale of the digital underground. Spanning three continents and a decade of high level infiltration, they created chaos amongst some of the world's biggest and most powerful organizations. Brilliant and obsessed, many of them found themselves addicted to hacking and phreaking. Some descended into drugs and madness, others ended up in jail. As riveting as the finest detective novel and meticulously researched, this nonfiction thriller follows the hackers through their crimes, their betrayals, the hunt, raids, and investigations.
